Hello!
I'm sure this has been done many, many times before, but I am attempting to create my own pokedex, and I've decided to post my progress here in case anyone was intrested :)
The Olpam Region is home to many pokemon, (Well, 1 so far, but you get my meaning), all of which will be based off myths and ledgends from different cultures across the world. As I am mainly familiar with Greek Myths, aswell as the common and well known ones, I'm going to need some help with ideas for pokemon. I will also be organising challenges where you have to guess what myth a pokemon is based upon, and then the winner can PM me with a new idea, which I will turn into a Pokemon and start another challenge with :).
As my spriting skill develops, I will go back and redo the sprites for the Pokemon, until I will hopefully have a good looking, awsome dex.
Feel free to submit your own pokemon, although I may turn them down, particularly if they make mine look bad, (just kidding :))

Oh, and one last thing, I wasn't sure where to post this thread, so if there is a better place feel free to close this thread and I'll open it somewhere else :)

The Dex

001-- Pomphone

Pronounced, Pom-fun-ee
The Temptation Pokemon
Grass / Dark
Dex: Pomphone secretes a sweet smelling, attractive scent that earns it many friends. However, you must beware, as a Pomphone only thinks of itself, and will use you for its own gain.

Current Challenge
Guess Pomphone's Origin:
Easy: Guess the plant Pomphone is based on.
Hard: Guess the myth Pomphone is based on.
Good Luck! (You will probably guess it really quickly!)

The sprite looks pretty good; it has a funny facial expression. XD

Not sure what it's based off of. Umm...pitcher plant? [/random guess] It doesn't look like one, but they do attract insects with their smell, so that's the basis for my guess.

anyway, awesome dex so far; I'd love to see what else you've created.

Looks like it has something to do with an experiment you might be doing in Biology class.

I assume you'll be using sprites for your Fakedex so I'll move it to Fan Sprites. /flieswithittospriteland

It's based off a pomegranate, and the myth is based off of Persephone eating 4 seeds of it and having to reside in Hades for 4 months because of it.

It looks good and it has an interesting basis. I'm not sure if I'd make it a starter, but that's just me.

Yeah. There isnt much to it. May I suggest using an entire pomegranate for the first form? A seed doesn't have much to it.
